Semalam after work before balik rumah singgah rumah my parents. Sempatla baca beberapa old newpapers. Hehe. Kesiankan, nak baca newspapers kena balik rumah Subang. Nampak sangat kat rumah sendiri tak pernah beli paper! Hehe.
Anyways, ada dua interesting articles that I read.
One is about the Enticement case involving Daphne Iking and the other is on Nikah Tajdi (Batin).
If you haven't noticed (macam PinkGremlim yang tak baca paper hari-hari), there's a case initiated in court by celebrity Daphne Iking's husband, Ryan Chong against Darren Choy in a private summon (private prosecution) in where Darren Choy has been allegedly accused of enticing Daphne Iking, who's married to Ryan Chong with a criminal intent and/or the intent of having illicit/sexual intercourse, under Section 498 of the Penal Code.
Well, in normal circumstances, a criminal case is brought up in court by the prosecution against an accused person. This begins with a police report lodged by a civilian/individual and after investigation, an IP (investigation papers) will be sent to the AG's Chambers (Attorney General's Chambers) before the case is decided to be prosecuted in court. In short, it is initiated by the government.
Now this current case is rare in two ways. One is that it is a private prosecution as opposed to public prosecution by the government and secondly, it is rare in itself- this Section 498 of the Penal Code has rarely been invoked in Malaysia. Rare but yet interesting. Imagine a case of enticement which is obsolete in UK, the law though labled as an archaic law is still applicable in Malaysia.
Tak sabar nak tunggu what happens next! Enticement Enticement Enticement...
On a more horrible note, there is also an on-going case in the Mahkamah Tinggi Syariah on Nikah Tajdi (Batin). A "wife" has filed an application to verify the status of her marriage to a business man whom she allegedly married four years ago.
Al-kisahnya, "si isteri" rasa sangsi dengan pernikahan dia dengan "si suami" kerana pernikahan itu dibuat tanpa jurunikah, wali dan saksi. Nikah tu dijalankan antara mereka berdua "bersaksikan hanya Allah" di sebuah rumah di Kuala Lumpur. Dan selepas itu mereka mengadakan hubungan kelamin seperti suami isteri. Lepas sebulan, mereka nikah pulak secara sendikit di Thailand. "Si suami" tuduh "si isteri" sengaja failkan kes ini untuk memalukan dia tambahan pulak "si isteri" ingin kahwin lain.
Astaghfirullahalazim. Budak sekolah pun tahu rukun-rukun nikah. Lima rukun nikah adalah pengantin lelaki, pengantin perempuan, ijab & qabul, wali dan dua orang saksi. Scarryla bila fikir orang buat sesuka hati macam ni. Apa nak jadi dengan dunia. Tak tau la nak cakap macam mana lagi. PinkGremlin bukanla baik mana, tapi this is wayyyy to much!
